As the only chemistry department in the country with an in-depth focus on polymer science, we are uniquely positioned to do high quality research in many of the various areas encompassed by the field, including analytical polymer chemistry, polymerization methodology and polymer fibres.
Relevant Research Groups
Ms Gericke is responsible for the development and coordination of the programme in Textile and Polymer Science (launched in 2003). This relatively new approach to this study field focus on textile science with a strong scientific base in Chemistry and Polymer Science. The research focus is on the development and evaluation of technical and performance textiles for niche markets – including smart textiles and nano-fibres.
